Program Overview

Over the past year our attention has inevitably been on the Coronavirus, the health of our families, patient and staff as well as the re-opening of our practices. However, the opioid crisis continues, is likely to worsen as a result of the Pandemic and continues to challenge Dentistry. We have brought together a group of national thought leaders and experts in this field who will share their insights on the current state of opioid prescribing in Dentistry and describe some of the exciting work being done in advancing pain management for our patients.
